Event description


This event is now closed - Check out the 1-day training on 24th May in Zürich

Do you find that you’re always busy, but that distractions and inefficiency affect your performance at work? Do you want to learn the precious art of exceptional focus and Flowstates at work?

Modern productivity is hard. The average knowledge-worker is interrupted every 11 minutes. Distractions, perfectionism, low energy, and work overload costs us around 145 work days each year.

There is a way to overcome these obstacles, and learn to do it for life.

Over these 3 days, you will likely achieve 5-10 days worth of progress.

By investing 3 short days, you will also transform the way you get work done, for life - You will train your mind for deeper-focus and higher-effectiveness, to save dozens of workdays this coming year.

The Flow-working Business Retreat allows you to get significantly more work done that what you achieve in your ordinary workplace using ordinary methods, yet with less effort – thanks to a new form of effectiveness training based on the neuroscience of Flowstates.

Over three days, you'll do higher quality work, get more ideas and insights, focus on the work that matters most to you, and get things done that would otherwise have taken weeks.

By applying the Flow-Working™ method, you will take away an invaluable life-skill that you can apply to your everyday work, and which will help save you dozens of work days each year.

The method is proven.

What is Flow-working™? A system for effortless, focused workdays

Do you remember being so immersed and energized by an activity that you forgot about time?

Flow-working™ is a new method of effectiveness training designed to create hyper-focused, almost effortless work days. Companies like Google are training their employees in Flowstates. We believe Flow is the number 1 factor for wellbeing and high-performance at work.

Based on a neuroscientific approach, Flow-working™ allows you to tap into a state that enables you to get things done with less effort, focus deeper for longer, feel more energy, boost your happiness, overcome work overload, perfectionism, and procrastination, prioritize with clarity, and essentially become “undistractable”.

Who is it for?

The Flow-working™ technique can be used by professionals, entrepreneurs, executives, researchers, freelancers, writers, and creatives.

Even for those who feel you can’t “get away from work” because too many people are answerable to you, the Flow-working™ Retreat will actually buy you more time with colleagues and clients by freeing up hours of future workdays.

This is for anyone who wants to improve their focus, performance, and overall health and wellbeing.

The retreat is open to both individuals and teams of up to 15 people.

What you can expect

Work completion & Skills learning

You are likely to make more progress in the 3 days than over a normal 5-10 days (check out the testimonials). Two-and-a-half of Flow-work time is approximately equivalent what is normally achieved in an eight hour work day at the office. Participants often tackle important projects that would otherwise have waited weeks or months.

Expect to transform the way you work, focus longer and deeper, feel more energy, boost your happiness, become “undistractable”, and prioritize with clarity. You will take these skills back to your everyday workplace for long term effects.

Excellent networking opportunities

During the retreat, you will have the opportunity to meet and network with like-minded professionals from a wide range of backgrounds, in a setting that inspires more useful, more meaningful, connections; something valuable you can take with you once you leave.

A recharge for body & mind

You will destress, re-focus and re-energize. You will grow your personal working capacities. You will enjoy delicious, healthy vegetarian food, in an inspiring and gorgeous mountain setting. You will breathe fresh air and recharge your batteries.

Training workshops: What you will learn

“When it comes to getting things done and creativity, some call Flow a superpower.”

The workshops are hands-on and based on the neuroscience of Flowstates and models of performance excellence.

How to enter Flowstates: The precious skill of Flowstates at work - Increasing creativity & how to produce our best work

Peak Performance techniques: Dealing with distractions & procrastination - The cost of perfectionism and how to avoid it - Training the mind for deep focus and mindfulness

Purpose, motivation and emotional skills: How to turn boring tasks into meaningful ones - Clearing the mind and processing emotions

Motivation, purpose and meaning at work: Increasing energy and wellbeing at work: Making our work life simpler and easier - More energy during and after work - Establishing engaging morning routines

Effectiveness in everyday life: How to get and stay organized - Building effectiveness systems - Further effectiveness tools and techniques, from beginner to high-achiever

The research

People who enter Flow or “being in the zone” while working are reported to:

increase creativity by 2-6 times;

Increase productivity by 2-5 times;

Feel more calm and relaxed throughout the workday.

(Source: McKinsey research).

In “Flowstates”, the brain takes in more information per second and processes it more deeply.

Flow is also our optimal state of happiness and probably the most sought-after mental state.

The returns of effectiveness training

Effectiveness training has one of the highest ROI of any skill sets.

People who train their effectiveness skills by

+10%: Recover 5 weeks per year,

+30%: Recover 14 weeks per year,

for life. Most of us have a potential for doubling or tripling (+100 to +200%) our effectiveness levels.

Can you afford not to train yourself and your team?

How often do you/your team achieve a flowstate?

The ability to focus and be effective every day has never been harder. We're all pulled by incessant demands, unimportant tasks, and disturbances of our time and energy.

Companies lose 69% of each salary paid through personal ineffectiveness. 80% of employees are not engaged with their work. Overbusiness, information overload, and overwhelmedness are at an all time high.

Obstacles to effective and productive work increases stress levels and unhappiness.

This retreat is for people who believe that learning to enter Flow is a life-changing mental ability that anyone can master through training. We make our work less effortful, save hours of work each day, and make our workdays fulfilling.

How will it transform my (work) life? What work can I do there?

Use this retreat to move your professional work forward, develop your business, create strategies and plans, or start or finish that website/book/blog/dream project.

You can also use this time to de-procrastinate your to-do list, organize your inbox, get files in order… In essence, any tasks that will bring you closer to achieving your goals.

A retreat is an investment of time to create valuable personal transformations in our lives, because our brain is at its most insightful, creative and productive. People like Bill Gates and Mark Zuckerberg take work-retreats twice a year.

Katja Urbatsch – CEO and Founder of
Achieved ~7 days of work in 3 days of retreat

I loved the time spent away from life’s everyday obligations. It’s huge deal not to have to take care of dinner, groceries, and nature is so close by that mindful breaks are easy... I was already convinced by the Productivity Days in Berlin, but the Retreat made me even more productive.
Wiebke – Research associate at FU Berlin
Achieved ~5 days of work in 3 days of retreat

I experienced the amazing effects of working in the “Flow”. During the retreat, despite working so intensely, it felt like holidays: inspiring new people, a great location and plenty of yummy, healthy food. If the retreats were every month, I’d definitely go – I achieve much more, much faster.
